Description

A weekly reading and discussion group for veterans and service members

The ancient tale of Odysseus’ epic 10-year journey home from the Trojan War has much to tell us about the challenges of homecoming for today’s combat veterans. Contemporary literature combines with The Odyssey to reveal timeless and universal truths about combat trauma, duty and honor, personal sacrifice, and readjustment. Veterans and current service members are invited to attend this 14-week reading and discussion group co-led by facilitator teams of veterans, clinicians, and content experts. Free copies of the readings will be provided to participants.

This group will be facilitated by:
Stephen Trzaskoma, Classics Professor, UNH
Brendan O’Byrne, Student, UNH; Combat Veteran, Afghanistan
Al Porsche, Counselor; Combat Veteran, Vietnam

PLEASE NOTE: This program is free and open ONLY to veterans and current service members, and pre-registration is required. Please register early-- space is limited to 20, first come, first served. You may register here, or if you prefer, call Dr. Kathy Smith at New Hampshire Humanities at (603) 224-4071 to RSVP.

Schedule: Tuesdays, 6:00-7:30 p.m., Sept. 20 - Dec. 20
